I was on my way to work and thinking about this challenge, when I saw this blue pipe sticking out frm the ground. The light is from the sun rise that was just creeping over the hill side. I shot this a few ways from many directions, and at different focal lengths, but liked this one the best. The clouds looked pretty cool I thought. The low warm light really made this image pop for me, from the warm glow of the ground to the brightness of the pipe and the darkness of the clouds in the sky.

I this could have gotten low scores is beyond me. I wonder why those people don't even take the time to comment :(

Lovely shot.

Wow, thanks a lot, but just so you know, your shot is very nice and deserved to be where it is. =)

Really like the colours and the way this comes out. There is something about the angle that bothers me, but can't put my finger on it. Still a great shot :)

I really like this photo. The colors are great, and I love the contrast of the pipe and the background. Very good!

The vivid blue against the brown of the terrain makes a nice relief from the grey sky. I can almost see the clouds moving. Well done.

Great color contrasts and sky. I love the glowing brush. Nice lighting.

I like the stark contrast between the blue pipe, the rusty field and the sky. It's almost surreal. Nice tight composition...like how you cropped it.

I like the perspective of the wide angle lens. Nice shot.

This is neat...and i really caught my eye. I love the angle you took the pictue from.. it looks awesome! I love how the letter is like bright blue, and then the sky and the ground are almost pushed into the picture at a different angle. good shot.

Beautifully composed. I love the way this pic is put together, lots of visual appeal and very simple elements, sky, ground, pipe. Excellent!

This would have been more interesting if rotated 180 degrees. Good use of color.

Great shot. Love the vibrant colors and the sky (though I wish I could see more of it). Very good job.
